Hi Tony

A lovely composition - the waves and foam lead the eye into the picture, whilst the spray and muted tones add a great atmospher.

Hello Tony,
Very peaceful picture. Nice POV. It seems to me I can hear the waves incoming to the shore.

Hello Tony,
Water and foams placed in frame just perfectly. Mist adds value the photo as well. Good composition and well done.

The light and the mist create a stirring scene - romantic and something more.
Your lines and composition are great. A lovely photo.

Hi Tony,
Simple and effective composition, with the foaming surf line leading the eye right where it's supposed to go :)
Everything looks great!

Una playa fabulosa, para perderse (¿o encontrarse?) paseando por ella.
Buena luz y genial nitidez.
Hasta pronto, JL.

This first thing I notice is the faint mist against the rocks. Very nice effect. Then the multiple lines where the sea has already crossed the beach before. It makes me think that the tide is going out. Well done.

Hi friend Tony,
A fantastic scene again. The foams look awesome and the sheen of the sky on the wet sand is marvellous. You are right, it looks such a peaceful and tranquil place. Excellent POV to capture this charming ambience and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Tony excellent quality and fine details superb composition tfs rgds Necip.

Hi Tony,
the line of foam works really well as a lead in, taking the eye right that impressive lookingg headland. The reflection of the sky in the wet sand is great and it's sharp throughout, especially for f/4. Great shot

Hi Tony,

You refresh my memory. When I see this photo from the Karekara beach with the seafog above the sand. Yes exact when I was there. I believe it is in the evening a quit normal situation. Its just what hester said: A lovely calm and serene composition. Thanks for sharing Regards and TFS Bob

Hello Tony

Hi Tony!

Your lovely and appeasing picture really generates the emotions you wish to transmit through it and through your notes. It's a pleasure to look at and it invites for contemplation.

I like the composition very much: the wave starting down on the left is the guideline that leads into the picture and that divides it into two parts. I just regret that some parts of the whites in the clouds are burnt. I personally would try to repare this with some smooth postprocessing.

Kind regards

Hello Tony,
Wow! Very beautiful and looks so peaceful!
This is one of the gorgeous seascape shots on TN.
Excellent composition & POV with lovely colours and nice exposure.
Well presented!! I'm curious when you see this beautiful scene, then what do you think about? :-)
Great shot and TFS,
Best wishes,
